France Black Madonnas & Virgins in Majesty in the French Auvergne Limited spaces available When we are in their presence, the mysterious statues of the Black Virgin powerfully awaken our hearts and prompt our remembrance of a timeless being who has never left us.

10-10-14 Wrekin Trust Transforum Two Whole Person - Whole World
Charney Manor

Following the outstanding success of the 2013 event, the Wrekin Trust is pleased to present a further collaborative weekend - Transforum Two. Developing from last year's weekend, this Transforum will be a demonstration of thriving, caring community. It will be a time to share and deepen our understanding of how a whole person creates a whole world. Speakers will include Roger Orgill, David Karchere, Clive Larsen, Louis Bohtlingk and Tessa Maskell. This year the Transforum will be held at Charney Manor in Oxfordshire and the cost for the full weekend is �215 per person in a shared room or �235 per person in a single room. Humanity is now in the process of receiving a download. It is not coming from the internet, nor is it a digital file! The universe is downloading a transmission of its core power - Universal Love. It is being downloaded through the open hearts of people around the globe. It is then being emitted through those people to the entire body of humanity. Encoded within the carrier wave of universal love comes the universal wisdom and intelligence that illuminates the mind. It shows the path before us, as individual human beings start to create thriving community around them. The foundation of a thriving community is care, care for other people and care for the planet. The innate impulse of a whole person is to make the power of Universal Love real in how they communicate and relate to others. Whole people know that care is the only practical way to create a whole world; the only way to create a world that works. We hope you will be able to join us in October and look forward to seeing you then

31-03-14 The Gift of Adversity. The Journey of the Wounded Healer
Hereford

An evening with Miguel Dean. Life�s adversity began early for Miguel with the death of his mother to cancer before he reached his first birthday. Things didn�t get much better as his step mum became increasingly abusive. On leaving home things went from bad to worse culminating in life as a homeless beggar. However a pivotal moment when he was threatened with an axe began an amazing journey of transformation. He is now a respected coach and author who works passionately to empower young people and guide them along some of the difficult paths that he has travelled. Miguel sees very little difference between facilitating learning and healing and his approach to empowering youth is very much akin to that of Carl Rogers in that he believes that loving relationship is the key to learning, growth and change. �In Miguel�s talks, from the heart he shares some universal principles that when applied to our lives can seriously impact our positivity and our chances of being successful at anything we wish to achieve. These principles encourage you to reach your full potential and to live a life that spreads and shares compassion, peace and abundance. The essence of his message is that it is not what happens but how we respond that counts and that sometimes in the darkest times and places lies a key to discovering our life�s purpose and passion.� There will be a chance for you to also work with some of the tools Miguel developed or came across during his journey"

Self-knowledge and the Journey of the Soul
Weekend retreat with international speaker Ravi Ravindra

Boars Hill

The great spiritual traditions of the East and of the West have very much emphasized the importance of self-knowledge in the mystic journey of the soul from its imprisonment in self-occupation and self-centredness to a life of freedom in the vastness of feeling, thought and being.
Impartial and steady self-perception naturally leads to self-transformation, gradually enhancing the quality of the knowing self as well as of the known self. This is why the great sage in the Mundaka Upanishad said, �One who knows the supreme Brahman becomes Brahman.� And the Gospel of Philip said, �It is not possible for anyone to see anything of the things that actually exist unless he becomes like them... You saw the Spirit, and you became spirit. You saw Christ, you became Christ.�
The retreat will be based on the insights derived from an extensive study and practice of the teachings to be found in the gospels, including the non-canonical ones, the sacred texts of India, and the teachings of some contemporary spiritual masters. Participants will be invited to try some physical and psychological exercises

   
  Regional Gatherings for 2013
Evesham

We are living through challenging times in which each of us is called to play a part as our planet reaches a tipping point towards a new era unfolding. At the Wrekin Trust we are committed to building a strong network of Local Connectors across the British Isles. These are people from diverse backgrounds who connect and network with others, usually to initiate a local gathering of some kind to create deeper spiritual connections between people and a stronger sense of community. We would like to invite you to one of our Regional Gatherings designed to bring these Local Connectors together regionally with the growing network of other organisations with regional groupings of some kind. The events are supported by the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation.

 

The emphasis will be: on connecting and networking; getting to know other people in your region; sharing experiences, knowledge and resources; meeting and inspiring potential new connectors; and offering and receiving support and encouragement from our soul friends and companions.

In line with Wrekin's co-creative approach, we are extending this network of connection by collaborating regionally with allied national networks:

•  Interfaith Ministers from the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation (over 500 nationally)

•  Other active spiritual networks and open centres

It is hoped that in this way each region will begin to forge a self-supporting honeycomb of interconnected relations with allied individuals and organisations, enabling this wonderful work to mutually strengthen and expand. The regional days will run from 10.00am to 4.30pm and include tea and coffee. Lunch will be a "Bring & Share"" occasion. A donation of £10-£15 towards the cost of hosting these days will be most appreciated. We will send you a programme and confirmation of the venue before the event. To help with logistics, please reserve your place by completing the attached booking form. If you have any queries contact Claire on 07771 701031 or Nigel on 07940 001394

Inka Mysticism and Wisdom Teaching. Path 1 - Phana: Right or Mystical side
Boars Hill,Oxford Workshop Facilitators: Don Juan Nunez del Prado and Ivan Nunez del Prado
  In 1955 an expedition led by Oscar Nunez del Prado, Juan's father and Ivan's grandfather, revealed that people living in the high mountains of Peru were continuing the ancient practices of the Inka tradition, which is organised into different levels each with a system of formation and rites of initiation. The first three Inka Spirit workshops are for people new to the Inka tradition who are interested in learning about this spiritual practice. Transmission of the Inka tradition is mainly through stories, metaphor, and energy work, presented in an accessible way so we can all use these practical techniques in our everyday lives.

In this workshop, Juan shares the practice of living with light energy to enhance our wellbeing and our environment, explaining the historical and cosmological context of these techniques. Participants will learn how to connect with Sami (light energy), discharge Hucha (heavy energy), and connect with Masintin (same sex) and Yanantin (opposite sex) energies. They will participate in the Karpay Ayni initiation, the art of reciprocity, and a group connection to the local collective energy field which may be used as an empowering or healing technique.

The Retreat Centre has a range of very comfortable single and shared study bedrooms with washbasins, which have ample shower and toilet facilities nearby. Most rooms are on the ground floor, with no steps

  Faith, hope and love are at the heart of all spiritual practice, East or West, traditional or modern. The crowning glory of saints and sages in all traditions and at all times, these very dynamic sources of energy can also lead to fanaticism, fear and tyranny, and thus a constant vigilance is required.

This workshop will explore the way this sacred triumvirate has been understood in the New Testament and the Bhagavad Gita, and in the teachings of two contemporary masters, Gurdjieff and Krishnamurti. The emphasis will be on practice in our daily lives

04-11-08 Awakening Consciousness
Notting Hill London World Book Launch Event
 

This is the title of a new book containing many lectures that Sir George Trevelyan gave during the 1960s-1980s. We will be launching this publication by Godstow Press on this evening which includes the ninth Sir George Trevelyan memorial lecture which will be given by David Lorimer. We will also have an opportunity to enjoy exchanging ideas with others in cafe style conversations on how Sir George's vision might best be carried forward today. We do hope that you may be able to join us for supper and this event and also forward these details to those of your friends and family within reach of the London area. The changing times, for which Sir George was a prophetic voice, are now looming large in our awareness and the Wrekin Trust is committed to continue the work of raising consciousness that Sir George commenced. Venue: Essex Unitarian Church 112 Palace Gardens Terrace, Notting Hill Gate, London W8 4RT. Time 6.30pm - 9.30pm.

   
23-05-08 Practical Mysticism: The Way of the Future
Stroud
(Hawkwood)
A three day workshop with William Meader
 

For Centuries mysticism has been a major force in our quest to experience God and the spiritual dimension of life. Our yearning to find relationship with the divine is ancient, and has been an instinctual impulse with us since the dawning hour of humankind. Mysticism which has been an important aspect of all the major faiths is now gradually evolving into an approach to God, which integrates the inner, and the outer aspects of life and brings a contemporary understanding of spiritual living. This approach is called practical mysticism. In this weekend workshop the nature and application of practical mysticism will be presented. Listed below are a few of the topics to be presented.

  • The transformation of the mystic in to the practical mystic
  • Recognising the Spiritual Call
  • The destiny of the soul - to be a creative agent
  • Crisis as a prelude to expanded consciousness
  • Meditation used by practical mystics
  • Goodwill versus the will to good
  • Enlightened techniques used by practical mystics
  • The mystery of good and evil - an evolutionary perspective
  • Practical mysticism and service through magic
